Christian Pulisic has enjoyed a brilliant debut campaign for Chelsea, scoring 10 goals and providing 6 assists to his name in 33 appearances in all competitions.

The American international has been compared with Chelsea legend Eden Hazard, who left the club last summer for Real Madrid.

According to former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino, Pulisic can become a better player than Hazard if he stays at Chelsea as long as Hazard did.

“I’ve watched him develop and become a player,” former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“I looked at Hazard’s stats – first season, nine Premier League goals in his very first season, the 2012-13 season for Chelsea.

“I keep thinking: ‘Was Hazard as good as Pulisic has been?’ Pulisic has been out of the team at times through injury, he was brilliant in the Super Cup against Liverpool, but I think he has progressed into a player.

“He has got nine Premier League goals as well this season. I think Pulisic is going to be one hell of a player.

“He has got one advantage over Hazard, because Hazard was at Chelsea for a long time and over those years there were a few dips and sometimes he looked out of shape. Pulisic is a total pro, everything about him is professional.

“His pathway has been planned, from his parents down to him. The clubs, to get him to the Holy Grail of the Premier League, it’s all been programmed in a bit like an android, robot sort of form.

“Boy is he dangerous. If he stays in England for five, six, seven years for Chelsea, I think he’ll prove to be better than Hazard, and that’s a big call.”
